all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling. some democrats are calling it a trap. i'll ask dnc chairwoman debbie wa wasserman schultz what she thi
the ball. >> nos,, sir, i will not yield. tonight, my message to senator harry reid. plus the american people are getting ripped off by a congress that just isn't working. congressman rick nolan was there is 30 years ago. he's back now and he can't believe the difference. he's wondering, are we getting paid for this? >>> is it really an admission of guilt if you don't show any remorse? >> it did not even feel wrong? >> no. it's scary. >> did you feel bad about it? >> no. even scarier. >> psychologist dr. jeffrey gardere on lance armstrong's bizarre performance last night. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. republicans surrendered today in one of their biggest fights. president obama warned republicans about taking the debt ceiling hostage. it looks like they heard the message. >> the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is running short. >> republicans made their choice today during a gop retreat
? if so, you are probably over 30. plus, i'm sending a letter to senate majority leader harry reid on what washington can do for children. and nerdland is in washington. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry. this morning, we are live in washington, d.c. as preparations are under way for the second inauguration of president barack obama. and while the public ceremony and celebration will take place on monday, the official swearing in as mandated by the constitution will occur tomorrow morning. chief justice john roberts will swear in the president in a brief ceremony at the white house just before noon and msnbc will bring it to you live tomorrow. president obama will retake the oath with a 52% approval rating according to the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. after the last inauguration, the economy is not if a freefall, and universal health care is not a political platform, and the united states is not bogged down in multiple international wars, and the girls have a dog. look, president obama is go gin to enter his new term with with a new ad jen da already under a bright
democrats. one happens to be the top democrat in the senate, harry reid. john avlon is looking into the majority leader's ties with the nra. the man the president would be relying upon to get something significant in terms of gun laws. he does pretty well with the nra. >> here is the deal about harry reid and guns. he opposed the assault weapons ban not once but twice in 1994 and 2004. he has a "b" rating from the nra. that's higher than ten other democrats. he has received money from the nra than any other senate member. >> a little love affair. he even appeared with wayne la pierre in 2010. but, he is a guy who says, you know, i'm gonna go with my party and go with the democratic party line. will he really oppose the president on gun issues? >> he is not going to oppose the president. he is going to try to quarterback ter what he can. he is going to do what he can to move the ball forward. everything is on the table. here is the real deal. part of the pragmatism is a look at the election. arkansas, louisiana, month tan na, north carolina, south dakota. it will be interesting
at least that harry reid is not going to make his democrats who are up in 2014 walk the plank on a tough gun vote. so the house guys are saying look, we'll take it up when reid passes it knowing full well there's a small chance that larry reedye harry reid is going to pass a robust bill. if you saw some of the comments this past week from senators like max baucus, mary landrieu, mark begich who are up next year, you see why a lot of the house republicans are sort of smiling and saying we'll take it up when it comes over from the senate, wink, wink. >> gene, i guess it's going to be quite a while before i download profiles of courage volume 2 from the united states senate? >> i think it's going to be a while. look, it's been a month since newtown. and i think it's -- i think you make the case, it's unconscionable to do nothing, right, until the next newtown. i think there's a resonance out in the country. i think people get that this is something we really need to address and get it on an emotional level. but no, you're not going to be reading the updated profiles in courage out of the se
harry reid, the head of the democratic party in the senate, is nervous about submitting it to the congress because he figures it won't pass the house. >> two points. one, i think the poll -- and the irony here is a lot of the stuff you just showed the nra was behind. they didn't have a problem with -- >> that's right. >> -- the gun show checks -- >> in the days of yesteryear. >> in the days of yesteryear and i think they need to get back to that. >> you know the politics. why this they gone to this rejecti rejectionist? >> i'll be the washington cynic and the fact is it's fund raising and membership. and you look -- >> is it gun sales? >> absolutely gun sales, am mission, from ammunition to guns. take that off the table. you still have the slaughter of 20 innocents here. that's what is driving the american people. that's the focus of our community right now is if this can happen in newtown, massachusetts, it's certainly happens in chicago -- >> respond to what the governor said about the suburban governors who aren't right wingers. if you were still party chair, what lan
harry reid said he was reassured they're moving away from their all-or-nothing proposition. but overall what this is trying to do is give the house the ability to pass an extension and say to the house or senate if they don't move further, we've done our job, now it's up to you guys. there's definitely some posturing involved. >> at a time when we're seeing so many positive indicators, good news on the housing front, jobless claims are down, this kind of kicking the can down the road does not seem to be the kind of thing that would reassure small businesses or markets, wall street, anybody. >> well, look, it's better than not kicking the can down the road. it's better than having that debate right now because i think everybody on wall street and everybody who is in business thinks this is the silliest debate we could possibly be having right now. so to try to tie it to a budget proposal which is probably long overdue as we know, four years, is probably not a bad idea, but it's not nearly the same as not having this debate at all. so markets hate that. bankers hate that. businessmen hate
. what has harry reid rand democrats done in the senate? absolutely nothing. how many days since they passed a budget? >> 1,357. >> 1,357 days since democrats have passed a budget in the united states senate. >> let's talk about that lack of leadership so many people have criticized the president for not reaching out and being a leader and bringing in republicans to really get to know them on every level so they can perhaps negotiate a deal. president obama took a moment to address the criticism within the beltway he hasn't spend enough time developing personal relationships with members of cog. >> most people who know me know i'm a pretty friend lip guy and i like a good party. personal relationships are important and obviously, i can always do a better job. the nice thing is now that my girls are getting older, they don't want to spend that much time with me anyway. i'll be probably calling around looking for somebody to play cards with me or something because i'm getting kind of lonely in this big house. >> a quick search, just for the record, shows over the president's first
the road with the president's supreme court picks? >> what of the talk of harry reid, the majority leader in the senate, possibly getting rid of the filibustir, the sole tool to stop a vote on certain matters? it is not clear what matters would be -- he would be getting rid of the filibuster on? >> this has been in discussion. it could be a very minor change to the filibuster, versus something major. so i think eye am inclined-- the reason that harry reid is so other than ked, it has stopped business in the senate. they want to be able to bring bills up and to have the filibuster be used for things it's meant to be used for and for people to filibuster, not threat tone filibuster and gum up the gears of the senate. >> speaking of gear, let's change gears to the speech tomorrow while we have you. charles, what about this message that he is going to bring -- how tough will it be for president obama to knock down president obama the first time and to still touch chords that raise the country up as his aides seem to say he is going to do tomorrow. >> within a week of this inaugural, he said p
for the politics of this city. it's almost as if you have harry reid and mitch mcconnell directing traffic. nobody wants to move. nobody wants to do anything. >> by the way, you brought up harry reid's name. here's a majority leader of the united states senate that has worked overtime to not produce a budget in over four years. >> correct. >> 1,163 days if my harry reid calculator is correct. the democratic senate is every bit as dysfunctional as the republican house, and it seems to me we have to figure out a way to fix this. the responsibility lies on both sides of the aisle. >> let me toss it back to you with the initial question you asked me that i cannot answer. i don't know if john can answer the question you asked. but if president barack obama, what sense does it make to invite senator ted cruz down to the white house? >> it makes all the sense in the world. maybe not ted cruz but bring tom coburn over. you bring lamar alexander over. you bring bob corker over. one on one. you bring them all together. guess what? you get tom coburn from oklahoma going to ted cruz fr
, the senate majority leader harry reid didn't fully embrace the house plan. he also didn't say no either. but over at the white house, well, they are saying the president would sign it. >> the bill still has to overcome some concerns expressed by members of the house and the senate before it can pass both chambers and reach the president's desk. if it does, and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. >> if the president is not going to block it that would seem to add pressure on senator reid to take it up and act on it and that may force a budget to get done before long. shep? >> shepard: see what happens. mike emanuel on capitol hill. thanks. a good day for your 401 k. the dow and s&p 500 both closed at five year high. while the nasdaq went up 8 points. it's the seventh time the s&p has closed at a five year high just this year. hopes that congress will raise that debt ceiling and some really better than expected earnings reports helped fuel the gains today. google beat analyst's expectations and that helped push its shares up about 5% in
because harry reid and president obama didn't want it to pass. they wanted to raise the specter of a default to use. so, chuck, you and i could make news right now on national television. would you athrow to support the full faith and credit act and take the possibility of a default off the table? >> i support the mcconnell proposal. let us raise the debt ceiling. no strings attached. and if the president can raise it as he should be able to and if congress wants to reject it 2/3. the mcconnell proposal is a good republican proposal. i hope you support it. that's the way to go. >> let me ask you a question. a bill that says regardless of what happens the debt ceiling, that the united states will never default on the debt. would you support that or not? >> i support the concept. i'd have to look at the bill. the best way to do that is the mcconnell act. >> we may have just made news. >>> last week, general colin powell was here worried about a dark vein of intolerance in republican parties in some quarters. you are part of a stream of new faces in the republican party, minority f
pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is h

issue republicans can see democrats in distress. chief among them senate majority leader harry reid. >> i don't think senator harry reid brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up in election in two years. >> this and other difficulties appeared miles away as mr. obama recited the constitutional oath that cemented the start of his new term. >> i did it. >> sasha was referring to the mix jum four years ago where the chief justice and the president said some of the words of the oath out of sequence prompting a do-over here at the white house a couple of hours later. as sasha said nobody messed up this time and as said a couple of moments ago, that's probably not too bad. >>> robert gibbs was an adviser to the obama campaign and served as the white house's first press secretary. welcome. >> thank you. >> you have seen it you have read it, characterize it. >> i think it's hopeful, and it talks about the values and the visions and the ideals that bring us to this very moment as america. you'll hear the president talk a lot about what we have
in the weeks ahead. >> harry reid said it was doomed an assault weapons ban. >> it's tough. >> they need to stop talking about a global fix to the problem and talk about the gun issue in a different way and say we are now starting a conversation and starting moving
don't need these weapons for hunting or self-defense. >> the democratic leader of the senate, harry reid, says it's doomed to try to pitch that. i think there he will about some resistance. maybe it won't work. a democrat saying it won't work, it's pretty dire for that particular measure, isn't it? >> it won't be easy. look, there are a lot of lobbyists against any change. we saw that in my own state in the aftermath of virginia check. i acted by executive order to enter mental illness records buy a database which made our state safer. i tried to get my ledge will toure more broadly close the gun show loophole, and they wouldn't do it, and so i know these battles can be tough, but my hope is that sadly, since virginia tech, we have had a role, we have had the shooting in the sikh temple in milwaukee, tucson, newtown. maybe we have learned something and more motive to make these reasonable fixes. >> the president also has 23 executive actions. when you read through the list of 23, include publish a letter from the atf to federally licensed gun dealers on how to run background checks,
a majority hostage every time something comes to the floor. >> let's hope harry reid and the democrats pass filibuster reform. so what's coming up next? you've got a story you're really excited about coming up next. i'm sure we all be just as excited. >> i've been trying to get to it. up next, why coca-cola's new anti-obesity ads could backfire, resulting in more legal action. >> oh, please. >> against the soda maker. more. there already have been some lawsuits. that's next on "morning joe."
